Enaction and Cognitive Science, 27.06 - 03.07.2010

The fifth in a series of summer schools examining the enactive approach to cognitive science and cognitive systems research. The particular theme of the 2010 school will be "skill", and will focus on domains such as ecological psychology and dynamic sensorimotor approaches to cognition. Questions addressed will include how skills can be conceptualised and operationalised for psychological and modelling research, particularly within the context of embodied, embedded and enactive conceptions of cognition. The role and form of the interaction between the cognitive system and its environment will be examined, as will the distinctions (if any) between different kinds of skill (cognitive, performative, social).

To be held in Tipperary, Ireland on 27th June -- 3rd July 2010.

The school is built around several in-depth workshops. Plenary discussions are then lead by a respondent. Each day there are also small group workshops (maximum 8-10 people) where appropriate topics are raised by individual members in flash presentations and discussed. There will be at least one demonstration evening, where experiments and technologies appropriate to the school will be displayed. The final morning will be spent in a plenary integration workshop.
